Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Rob McArthur

Hello! I am Dr. Rob McArthur, and I want to welcome you to our Family, Cosmetic and Sedation Dental Practice here in Snow Hill! I received my Bachelor of Science in 1973 from UNC and subsequently, graduated with my Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the UNC- School of Dentistry with honors in 1977.  I was selected into the Omicron Kappa Upsilon National Dental Honorary Society. I received a Certificate in Advanced General Dentistry at the Naval Regional Medical Center in Portsmouth, VA in 1978 where I received extra training in various specialties including IV sedation.  I proudly served for 5 years with the US Navy Dental Corps as a LCDR serving aboard the USS Canopus AS-34 and the Dental Center in Charleston, SC until 1982. My wife, Paula and I decided that investing in people’s lives in private practice would best fulfill my passion for serving patients of all ages.  I came to Snow Hill, NC in August 1982 and purchased the practice of the late Dr. Jim Curfman. Serving here has enabled me to treat people with compassion and skill in a field that I really love that motivates me!

I have been married to my best friend Paula since 1977 and we live in Snow Hill. We’ve had the privilege of being blessed with 2 beautiful daughters, Kristen M. Bartholomew, RDH, and Lori M. Allen, Attorney at Law. I am also a disciple of Jesus Christ and have had the privilege of serving as an Elder and Housechurch Leader at Grace Fellowship Church, in Kinston since 1994. I’m an avid learner and I enjoy reading, exercising and watching sports. Over the years, I have been active in civic and local organizations such as the Rotary Club, American Heart Association, American Diabetes Association, etc.  I am a member of the American Dental Association, NC Dental Society, Academy of General Dentistry, Tar River Dental Study Club and the American Society of Dental Anesthesiology.  

I look forward to meeting and serving you and your family! I’ll do my best to care for you and make your experience as exceptional and painless as possible! We welcome my son in law, Dr. Whit Bartholomew, and his wife, Kristen (my daughter), RDH, to our practice as well!
